Ask for Johnny! Very knowledgeable with plenty of humor thrown in. The one hour tour is worth your time to get a good layout of Galena now and its history.

It was a beautiful, warm day for a tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and built humor into his stories. Although I have been coming to Galena for decades, I saw and learned things I do not know.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable; the 1 hour tour was a nice overview of the city and its history. Not a hop on-hop off tour.
